Cool

Welcome to the club, I've been with Rogers High speed (formerly @Home) for 5 years now.

Which isp provides your cable internet? I'm a Road Runner tech myself

I've been running an RCN Cable Modem for a few years - I'll never dial up again!

I love cable, but the only thing I hate is the drop in throughput when there are multiple users in your neighbourhood. :(

My friend and I had contests on who could steal the most bandwidth when RoadRunner originally came to milwaukee.... we were neighbors, and had only 4 people on our circuit. but... we got into Counterstrike, and DSL provided better pings, so, Out went the cable and in came DSL. pings dropped by 30 ms all around but downloads were slower. oh well? I am sure the other two neighbors loved us tho..as thier connections weren't getting hammerd anymore
